Evelyn’s relationship with the Foundation began in 2016 when she received a Silver Scholarship from the Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund. Soon afterward she joined the staff as an intern, helping out with the day-to-day tasks of the office at the front desk with a specific focus on the scholarship program. Her role has evolved to the Early Childhood Education Coordinator, now supporting the Early Childhood Program with the Grandparents/Kin Raising Children Advisory Council as well as the education and training needs of our collaboratives, local early childhood programs, and community members.
Evelyn graduated from Northern New Mexico College with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and is currently serving on Northern New Mexico College's Board as Student Regent. She is also a 2020-2021 Alumni of Georgetown University's Academy for Research, Clinical, and Health Equity Fellowship, aimed to support and prepare undergraduate students for successful matriculation into medical school. Outside of work, Evelyn leads the Spanish Music Ministry at Holy Cross Catholic Church and provides mentorship to several youth pursuing a college education.
